An Aston Martin DB10 driven by Daniel Craig in the James Bond movie Spectre has fetched £2.4m ($3.44m), far more than the estimated base price of £1m. The car was one of the only two that was left as "display cars", while the other eight were modified for the movie.
The car was sold at the Spectre - The Auction organised by Christie's on 18 February. The watch worn by the actor fetched £92,500, while his Day of the Dead costume was sold for £98,500. The nine carat solid gold ring worn by actor Christoph Waltz - who played the villain Oberhauser - raised £32,500.
In all, 10 items from the auction raised £2,785,500, which will be going to charities such as Medecins Sans Frontieres and the United Nations Mine Action Service. Another 14 items will be auctioned online on Christie's website by 23 February.
The car, which was hand-built at Aston Martin's UK headquarters in Gaydon, boasts a 4.7-litre V8 petrol engine that can push the car to a top speed of 190mph. However, it cannot be driven on public roads. The car's body is made of carbon fibre, comes with a manual gearbox in the middle and has a rear-wheel-drive.
"The DB10 is one of the rarest cars ever created. Only 10 will ever be made and this is the only one that will be made available for sale," Aston boss Andy Palmer said. "It's great to see this DB10 raising vital funds for Médecins Sans Frontières, it is a fantastic charity that we are delighted to support," Palmer said.
The first-ever Aston Martin to feature in a James Bond film was a DB5, in the 1964 film Goldfinger.
